    Fluid Movements

    Lately I have been fascinated with the stick figures and this fascination brought me to learning about flash. That’s why I'm here. I’ve made one movie which was very amateur, The sticks changed shape every frame and they didn’t move as fluid as the flash professionals such as stick figure ninja or zhu zhq .I know I wont be a professional or even close so soon but I been looking for tutorials to help me on my quest I seen plenty of tutorials some half ass and others have nothing to do with Flash Mx .So that gets me here can you help me by directing me to excellent tutorials or your own experiences taht would help me in making my animation quality better.

    - Thank You




    I have attached my very first animation.

    Very nice work, now if you do it with more frames, and add slower movements, it becomes more fluid.

    yous sound like your in a movie - i will sacrifice that, if thats what it takes! LOL!

    Anyway, yeah if you make more frames and make a tween that was 5 frames, to 10 or 15 frames, then speed up the frame rate, it will go at around the same speed, but will go smoother.

    I have not seen your work as my MX said it was an unrecognized format or something. If you want you could post the .swf, that could help.

    but otherwise, just do what it says above, and tell me if that helps.

    Just the same way as you posted the .fla. You need to click export movie in the file menu, and it will make a .swf. But me watching the .swf wont help me solve the problem. I suggest you just do what i said in the last post. Make the frame rate faster, and make more frames!

    Suave

    Main Entry: suave
    Pronunciation: 'swäv
    Function: adjective
    Inflected Form(s): suav·er; -est
    Etymology: Middle French, pleasant, sweet, from Latin suavis -- more at SWEET
    1 : smoothly though often superficially gracious and sophisticated
    2 : smooth in texture, performance, or style
    - suave·ly adverb
    - suave·ness noun
    - sua·vi·ty /'swä-v&-tE/ noun
    synonyms SUAVE, URBANE, DIPLOMATIC, BLAND, SMOOTH, POLITIC mean pleasantly tactful and well-mannered. SUAVE suggests a specific ability to deal with others easily and without friction <a suave public relations coordinator>. URBANE implies high cultivation and poise coming from wide social experience <an urbane traveler>. DIPLOMATIC stresses an ability to deal with ticklish situations tactfully <a diplomatic negotiator>. BLAND emphasizes mildness of manner and absence of irritating qualities <a bland master of ceremonies>. SMOOTH suggests often a deliberately assumed suavity <a smooth salesman>. POLITIC implies shrewd as well as tactful and suave handling of people <a cunningly politic manager>.









    Context of which i used the word "suave" in the sentence "that reply was straight suave" means that what I have said was smooth and cool...which was a opinion of mine.



    This reference of the word "suave" was done by http:www.merriam-webster.com

    Nice!

    Very nice! But..... Now i have downlaoded and seen it there is a problem. Because it does not use motion tweens speeding up the frame rate and spacing out the frames will not work.

    Because of the very nature of the movie, the way it goes frame to frame suddenly, instead of blending a morphing. If you see what i mean, it will not work, or as far as i know it won't, sorry!

    Shape and motion are similar but shape sort of morphs shapes, and motion creates a motion, so if you wanted a square to go from one side of the screen to the other, you use motion tween, if you want a shape to urn into something else, use the shape tween. i think, it can get confusing!

    The thing is as far as i can see, the movie you ahve made, you have made one frame and drawn the stick man, then started from scratch on the next frame. Therefore the 2nd frame is not a variation of the first frame, and a motion or shape tween (as far as i know) cannot be used.

    Sorry!
